Choosing between your existing investment in infrastructure and moving to the cloud is not a binary decision. Deep features, dedicated connectivity, identity federation and integrated tools allow you to run ‘hybrid’ applications across on-premises and cloud services.
The AWS Cloud operates 42 Availability Zones within 16 geographic Regions around the world, with five more Availability Zones and two more Regions coming online throughout the next year. Build applications which span the globe, or choose to maintain data sovereignty in compliance with your regulatory needs.
